Has this developed, or has this been going on all along? If it's not new- do you really have a WD rear end? They really moaned. Chasing a noise can really be a fools errand. It could be anywhere. I know someone who tore the rear end of a tractor apart only to find a loose wheel weight! Sorry about this one but I can't resist- how's the front differential ?!

Well Old, I can't believe you missed that- if there's a "rear", there must be a "front",- right?

Pretty common with theses old tractor to make a lot of noise. If you want to look into it deeper jack up the rear end and put it in gear with the engine running and see if one side is louder then the other. Of course check all your fluid levers because if any one is low that will add to the noise

sHan,tn -
Ive had the same question on my 52 WD. Folks I have talked to told it was normal and quit worrying. To me the gears sound "dry" but I have had no issues in 4 yrs.

Dumb luck perhaps. I defer to others for a much better qualified answer.

Could be that the pinion (Bearings) of that side need adjusted..(on the top, end of the Final-Drive).. Would be best to slide the rear wheel out as far as possible, first..

when your screaming down the road in high gear, back off on the throttle real quick, or push in the clutch... noise go away ? Bearings are still spinning... its gear mesh.
